First question-what seeds are they?
You have probably compacted the compost too much-a gentle tap on a surface is all that is needed-try watering from the bottom as well.
You are are somewhat early on nigella-by about 3 months- and would leave chilli as well for a couple of months
What are going to do with these seedlings now?
I find John Innes seed compost to be rather hard and mix it with some general purpose and grit. What to do now is more difficult. Keep it moist (not wet) and all will be OK probably. John Innes seed compost has been around for years, it must work, but I don't like that hardness round small seedlings.
Fair enough-just wouldn't want you rushing in too early-always a fatal mistake that ends in tears
Frozz, Keep a little journal of what you are planting, how long it takes to germinate, how they do and when they are planted out. That way...you keep a record of your garden. i find it helps me very well. Good luck and I'm sure you will have a wonderful collection come summer time
The down side of record keeping is seeing the list of plants that have died. But I still think it's a good idea.
This is true Nutcutlet lol
